Contak 440 (2)

DSCF0404

The Faber-Castell Contak • 440 and the the later Newell version are rather similar:

And while it’s not unusual for a pencil’s design to change over the years, this earlier version of the Contak is considerably different: Gold stamp, gold ferrule with double-enamel stripe, and a completely different logo:

The diameter of this pencil is a little wider too, but from what I can tell the lead remained the same.

    The double black stripes and the ‘fuller’ font give the old version an air of elegance, but also supremacy. Beautiful.
